The ultimate in high gain! This ENGL Ironball packs an astonishing amount of features into this tiny grab-and-go head. Perfect for the studio or stage, and depending on how you play- this may simplify things quite a bit...
Dual channel operation with a Clean and Lead channel, and a host of effects, gain staging options, and more! From the front, it looks mostly like your average amplifier- save for a toggle section that gives you quick control over routing, effects, and more. In the back you'll find everything from a headphone output to XLR DI output, USB and MIDI input, effects controls, numerous outputs, and the list goes on and on. The clean tones are crisp and lively, while the Lead channel offers a TON of gain but sounds great on tame settings as well. 8 loadable Impulse Responses means you can cover anything from Skynyrd to Metallica to Deftones, and switching between those can be done with the flick of a switch.
Lightweight and packed with innumerable sounds, the ENGL Ironball is a treat for players looking to cut down on their rig size without sacrificing their sound.
